Campus Map & Parking Information

The Fall 2014 Residency will be held in Robertson Hall, which is adjacent to the Library. The most convenient parking lots are B and C on the campus map, but all campus parking lots are located within easy walking distance. Students attending residency may park in any unnumbered, regular parking space. There is no separate campus parking fee for the Fall 2014 residency.


Lodging

Students are responsible for making their own lodging arrangements, and there are a number of fine hotels from which to choose. The Founders Inn & Spa is adjacent to Regent University and features Grand Georgian architecture, the personal hospitality of a country inn, beautiful gardens, swimming pool, fitness center and spa services. The School of Business & Leadership works closely with The Founders Inn to secure a special residency rate. Students may reserve their room at The Founders Inn when they register for residency. Since the number of discounted rooms is limited, early reservations are encouraged. Register for residency.
